Based on my research, Pioz15 contains (15 mg) of the active ingredient Pioglitazone; which is a prescription drug of the class thiazolidinedione (TZD) with hypoglycemic (antihyperglycemic, antidiabetic) action to treat diabetes. It is used to improve glucose control in adults over the age of 18 with type 2 diabetes. Pioglitazone is marketed as trademarks Actos in the USA, Canada, the UK and Germany, Glustin in Europe, Glizone and Pioz in India by Zydus Cadila and USV Limited, respectively and Zactos in Mexico by Takeda Pharmaceuticals.

It has been banned in India due to the fact it may cause bladder cancer. From what I can gather, the ban on this medication may be revoked due to lack of scientific evidence to support the claims. It may be reintroduced, but will be sold with a warning stating that it can cause bladder cancer in high dosages.

I read that there are currently no affordable alternatives for Pioz 15. Maybe you can speak with your doctor about trying some medications that have similar properties as Pioz15?

You can learn more about this drug on the page for Pioglitazone Details

I hope this helps, please post back if you have any more questions!

Hi Jenna,
Thank u for advice. I met Doctor and he prescribe the alternative of Pioz MF30 as " VOLIBO M 0.3" and Pioz MF15 as "VOLIBO M 0.2" Manufactured in India by Sun Pharma. Could you please research about these drugs. Is it safe medicine?
